Shortly after graduating from The University of California, Berkley in 1941, Nelson became a contract player for MGM. He appeared in several films including Shadow of the Thin Man and Dr. Kildare's Victory before joining the army during World War II. During the war he traveled as part of a stage production of Winged Victory which in 1944 was adapted into a film in which Nelson shared the screen with Red Buttons and TV's Superman George Reeves. In the post-war years Nelson made several more films including Undercover Maisie and Time to Kill before starring in such early television shows as The Ford Theatre Hour, The Chevrolet Tele-Theatre, and The Philco Television Playhouse. Personally, however, I will probably best remember Nelson for his role of Stuart Ullman in Stanley Kubrick's The Shining.
